This web site has been set up to help find connections between
topics in maths, and to see how they are related. We want to
find which topics should be learned (or at least seen) before
others, and for a given topic, where it then gets used.

But what comprises "a topic"? Is "Complex Numbers" a single topic?
Or are these all topics:

* Adding complex numbers
* Subtracting complex numbers
* Multiplying complex numbers
* Taking Finding the conjugate of a complex number conjugate
* Dividing complex numbers

It would be useful to have a single, binary question that lets
us make that determination.


Tags might work for collections of topics. They could also be used for themes like 'proportional reasoning' and asides like 'Euclid'.
Topics might then be categorised by minimal sets of examples.
